BACKGROUND Among the various hippocampal network patterns, sharp wave-ripples (SPW-R) are currently the mechanistically least understood. Although accurate information on synaptic interactions between the participating neurons is essential for comprehensive understanding of the network function during complex activities like SPW-R, such knowledge is currently notably scarce. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We demonstrate an in vitro approach to SPW-R that offers a simple experimental tool… CONTINUE READING
